Severe Turbulence Forces Plane to Make Emergency Landing

A Horizon Air jetliner which departed from Los Angeles International Airport bound for Reno, Nev. made an emergency landing at Sacramento International Airport Monday night because of severe turbulence, an airline spokeswoman said.

Horizon Air Flight 2446, a Bombardier Q400, departed from LAX about 5:45 p.m. but made an emergency landing in Sacramento about 7:10 p.m., according to the airline's Web site.

Severe turbulence experienced during the flight caused some flight attendants and passengers to complain of discomfort, Horizon Air spokesman Jen Boyer said.

Those with discomfort were examined by paramedics in Sacramento and released, she said, adding that "everyone was fine."

Passengers were reassigned to other flights bound for Reno, Boyer said.
